My only complaint is that it doesn't have 'rain on a tin roof'. (It does have rain and thunderstorm though.)

Re: Tropic Thunder

I love Ben Stiller, but I thought this movie was a mess. There were a few good laughs though (panda), and Downey was great. If you blinked in the 1990's you missed seeing 'The Ben Stiller Show'.

Re: Bigger Stronger Faster*, a new dvd about steroids

Shaf just posted an update on the Training Forum.

The oldest brother in the movie was just found dead at 37.

Re: Fucker Surrenderer Obama Learn How to Win Against Terrorists

Wow, I remember a few years ago Conan had a special mystery guest on the show.

When it came time Conan said, "Ladys and gentlemen...it's Grady!"

The crowd went nuts and gave him a spontanious standing ovation.

Bigger Stronger Faster*, a new dvd about steroids

I just Netflixed this documentary about steroid use and thought it was a very good film. They cover both sides of the issue, and it has a lot of very frank discussion about the pros and cons of steroid use. It features three brothers who are into power lifting. Two of them are surprisingly open abou...
